When I was a little boy playing ZX speccy and C64 games I fantazised about games in which you can move around in a third person view shooting things, interact with the environment and solve puzzles, then Wolfenstein and the likes and especially Doom came and it was quite like I predicted in my little boy's mind.
Later on I expected Virtual Reality would become the new standard in the rather near future, I expected games and even interface interaction would go through virtual reality headsets expanded with sensors and such to create a realistic experience, especially in the console world i believed this would become the new norm quite soon but alas, it never happend. Now with the wii we might see a new development in that area but I doubt it really.

If the amiga wasn't die perhaps we could have that now ?
It's too bad than 3d games killed 2d games evolution. I just still love 2d games
I completely agree with you.
